mlb commisioner bud selig releases statement on derek jeter retirement

Earlier today, the New York Yankees and MLB lost one of its biggest stars, and for once we're not talking about Alex Rodriguez!

Derek Jeter announced that he would be retiring after the 2014 season, bringing an end to a legendary 20-year career.

Major League Baseball's commissioner Bud Selig released a statement on the imminent ending of the iconic shortstop's career, saying:

"In the 21-plus years in which I have served as Commissioner, Major League Baseball has had no finer ambassador than Derek Jeter. Since his championship rookie season of 1996, Derek has represented all the best of the National Passtime on and off the field. He is one of the most accomplished and memorable players of his –or any– era. Derek is the kind of person that generations have emulated proudly, and he remains an exemplary face of our sport. Major League Baseball looks forward to celebrating his remarkable career throughout the 2014 season."

We couldn't have said it better ourselves!

While it's definitely sad to see him go, we can't wait to see how each team honors his remarkable career throughout the season!!
